for so-called certified puc lbe, which are small businesses located within our regional water service area, but outside of the boundaries of san francisco. the puc lbe program was created in 2006 to allow small business that operate within our puc water service area to compete for work on the water system improvement program; as know the wisp program has two-thirds of costs being paid by regional water customers of the sfpuc and so the thinking in 2006 it was appropriate for those communities that pay for our water systems improvement to also yield the local economic benefits that are certified puc lbe contracting program can provide. since the wisp program is nearing completion, but the sfpuc has additional projects within the water service area that are not part of wisp construction, the changes in this legislation would allow puc it to continue to support the small businesses by expanding the program to other areas in the region to include the same lbe contracting procedures successfully implemented through wisp. the sfpuc, the human rights commission and small business commission
of service. it's worth noting also that the puc has additional energy-efficiency rebates that they have indicated that the transit center might be eligible for above and beyond those offered by pg&e. and that puc primarily, because they are primary hetchy and solar power that they are 100% greenhouse gas-free service to the tjpa. so in summary, the sfpuc is offering us an ongoing service rate that would be 10% lower than pg&e's. an initial cost of connection that is again roughly $650,000 less than pg&e's. and has a comparable level of reliability of service. and so the recommendation is that the board authorize staff to negotiate an agreement with puc. >> thank you. actually i did have a quick question. i wasn't clear from the summary, the $661,000 of the itcc, are we going to discount that amount to the puc? because in the summary it said a minus and i wasn't sure we would offer that credit to the puc, since we would not have to pay it to pg&e. >> the puc has said is that they would limit the cost to the tjpa to the amount that it would cost them to establish pg&e network grid ser
the puc here. >> good afternoon, chair farrell, members of the committee. john updike, director of real estate. so, this item is a lease of just over one acre of land owned by the sfpuc under their bay division pipeline 3 of 4 right-of-way in the city of los altos shown on the map here. it adjoins a marriott residence inn. that address is 44 60 el camino real. so, this gives you a detailed look at the area. the lease is with los altos hotel associates, llc, it is for a term of 20 years. it's an existing parking lot. it was a prior lease of 10 years so this is a new lease coming forward with an initial term of -- a full term of 20 years. payment streams are detailed in the third page of the report from the budget analyst. it begins at a rate of 52,3 24 dollars in year one, increases 4% each year. [speaker not understood]. establishes a new base rent each five years at the discretion of the general manager and the puc. this rate was established through an independent appraisal as a rate with which i concur. given the leased area, only benefits from as you can see from the picture, the adj
help to ramp up. >> that's a great recommendation, thank you, and then as you know, puc is in the beginning phases of its sewer system improvement program and are trying to integrate some of the innovative technology resource recovery and the waste water process, so some ideas around that, and then i think one thing we were really pleased about is that last year when the legislature did their initial bills around happen trade revenue allocation, there is a requirement that up to 25% of dollars be spent in disadvantaged communities, historically, san francisco, the definition of disadvantaged communities that the state uses is one that keeps income relative to the state and so we often don't count as a disadvantaged community though we have many neighborhood that are struggling, i think the definition they're using for disadvantaged communities in the context of cap and trade dollars, the bayview hunter's point community will be eligible for those funds so we are hope hating we can try to get access to some of those revenues for that, so we will continue to update you mov
a determination before the puc board. >> yes. we like for them to be comfortable to provide advice to our commission. we are at the same time pursuing our polling of customers with those not to exceed rates, with that mix of resources to see -- to test the customer comfort with the overall program offering. we won't have those results as quickly as we thought we were going to have them so that is another factor, and they're interested in knowing what the results of that polling effort is, and we've certainly told our commission that we won't bring the not to exceed rates to them until we have that comfort level up. >> when you say "polling" are you talking about an actual poll to survey by phone? >> yes. the phone survey of customers. it's refreshing of the same survey, same type of survey we connected earlier on in the program to make sure we still have good data to base our expectations of customer opt out and acceptance of the program offering. >> is that something you can share next time we meet? >> yeah, we should be in a position to share the questions. i think we're going to p
a question. on the low margin issue, are you saying you negotiate a contract with the puc and then they come back with an amendment because they change their mind about the kind of carpet they wanted? >>> no, the scope of the work is undefined. so, when you do civil work, a rock is a rock is a rock. it doesn't have a brand name. so, it's very simple to pre-price rock and concrete and pipe. but when you get inside the building and you say you're going to get a light fixture, what kind of light fixture? i want that light fixture. that light fixture is not in the book. so, i have to go out and solicit that specific light fixture and tell you exactly what the price of that light fixture is and then it's predetermined how much markup i can get for pricing that book out. so, it's -- it gives the flexibility to the city to pick what they want specifically for their need. which is very typical -- >> so, the person that's losing that relationship is the vendor, not the city. >>> that is correct, yes. also, if you don't mind, i might also point out that the joc program, to the credit of the leadership
not to exceed rates. at the california puc, we are actively engage on that setting on the proceeding that they are conducting on pg and e's proposed green tariff omtion, they proposed a 100% green power product. that product is proposed to use green e energy certificates, it's anticipated to enroll 30 thousand residential accounts, which is about .68% of eligible customers, and they are proposing this program to serve all of the customers across their service territory. they expect to reach that 30 thousand enrollment by the end of the third year of the program, and just by way of comparison, we're talking about enrolling in our clean power sf program 50 to 90 thousand residential accounts day 1, you know, and that's in part because our program is an opt-out program, the green tariff option program pg and e is proposing is an opt-in pro program so it's projected that the differences that i communicated to you are pretty fair to assume given that that key difference in the enrollment strategies. pg and estimating is estimating their price premium to be about 6 dollars a month if r the
